Search Plan Profile

A committed, organized and cheerful individual, my enthusiasm for languages and effective communication has led me to pursue experience in a variety of fields. My semester in Germany taught me to work well with people, despite differences in personality and worldview. As a writing tutor at James Madison University and as an editor for the university's undergraduate research journal, I have learned to pay careful attention to writing and grammar conventions and to communicate my ideas clearly.
